"Then I Did" as written by Stephen Paul Robson and Jeff R. Steele....
I thought about calling you when I got off the plane
Every time I see this city through the clouds I get that way
Call me crazy for missing you like this but I do
By now I figured you had all your numbers changed

It's been at least a year since I called you up to say
We need to talk I got this job and I think I'm going to take it
'Cause I been waiting all my life
For a break like this

It's my chance of a lifetime I just know it is
I gotta go find these dreams
Was the last thing that I said
And then I did

I can see clear to the mountains as I head up our old street
I remember how we'd call in sick on days like these
And turn the music up roll the windows down and just drive
You talked me outta givin' up on myself so many times
Convinced me to get in while I could regrets hang heavy on the mind
But you never doubted me you kept pushing me

Saying you've been waiting all your life for a break like this
It's your chance of a lifetime you just know it is
You gotta go find those dreams
Was the last thing that you said
And then I did

But you were wrong
Love was what I wanted all along
And now you're gone

I thought about calling you when I got off the plane
Every time I see this city through the clouds I get that way

But you were wrong
Love was what I wanted all along

    General Commentmy favorite off of "Feels like Today"

    it's pretty self-explanitory.. girl encourages boy to go after something big, and so he does, but then realizes he was satisified with just being with her.

    i love the voices, but i think it's a song that you to be able to relate to in order for you to really like this song.

    General CommentI don't know why, but i just love how it goes "Every time I see the city through the clouds I get that way" I sort of have a thing for flying. I live in Malaysia and I love it here, but I get to go back to the States for the summers. There's something so special for me when we're just coming and I can see the sunlight streaming through the clouds and the skyline.

    General CommentI'm surprised more people haven't commented on this song. It's such a great one and it happens all too much as people get older. But you're right forelsket seg, it hits home more when you can relate so maybe that's why I really like this song. Sometimes people just have to go off and "find themselves," even if that means leaving you behind...

    My InterpretationI get the feeling he's too scared to call her as well, from the line "By now I figured you had all your numbers changed", as if he doesn't even want to try in case someone has taken his place.
